Snabbmatsjobben automatiseras, del 2

A hamburger-making robot that can create 360 perfectly made burgers an hour promises to usher a new era for fast food restaurants. Called Burgeon, the new robot that promises to make fresher, more consistent burgers, could replace thousands of low-paid workers in burger bars across the world.
Created by Momentum Machines, the team behind the food-bot includes members trained in mechanical engineering, control systems, and physics at top tier institutions in the US; Berkeley, Stanford, UCSB, and the university of Utah.

Billigare, snabbare, bättre och mer hygieniskt - what's not to like? Förutom förlusten av arbetstillfällen då, men det kanske inte är något att beklaga när det gäller just denna typ av jobb.
